Iran’s Supreme Leader urges strong turnout in presidential election

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei cast his ballot at a polling station in Tehran in the first minutes of voting in snap presidential elections.

Iranians are heading to the polls to cast their ballots for their next president following the martyrdom of their former President Ebrahim Raeisi, in a tragic helicopter crash.

Iran’s Election Headquarters has set up over 58,000 polling stations nationwide in preparation for the 14th Iranian presidential election on 28 June.

Speaking to a large number of reporters after casting his ballot at a polling station set up in Tehran Hosseinieh Ershad, the Leader of the Islamic Revolution urged Iranians to turn out to vote as a “definite necessity” for their country.

He said that the people’s turnout and an increase in number of voters is a definite necessity for the Islamic Republic.

“In the essence of this system, the presence of the people is taken into account. Also, the durability of the Islamic Republic and its honor and reputation in the world depend on the presence of the people,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
